So, I don't know for sure, but I've got a feeling I might have fibroids. Or at least that something's wrong down there. Fibroids would make sense, though. I don't know what 'heavy flow' is, don't pay attention, but some of hte other symptoms I have and it'd explain why my periods went from pain free to excruciating in just a few years. And if not, well, it might turn out to be something else while I'm finding out.
The problem is... I don't want to find out. I'd have to go to the gynecologist, have them poke around inside me, and possibly go through several other procedures involving things being inside my uterus. I don't want to go through that. and then it's probably expensive, who knows what the cost of fixing it would be, and dad's insurance is wonky. I don't know, I just don't feel like I can deal with this right now. (3 counselor's have told me I worry too much over my parents' finances, so, that's not helping.)
And who'm I supposed to ask? I don't want to ask either parent. It's just weird talking about girl problems with your dad, and mom can be weird when it comes to medical junk. I had a cyst and she told me to put heat on it, which turned out to be the worst thing you could do.
